September 2021 Points of Pride from Superintendent Bradley

Aaron Mossell Junior High School Renaming Ceremony

The renaming ceremony was held on September 2, 2021. Many guests and family members of Aaron Mossell were in attendance. Guests heard about the past contributions of Aaron Mossell and the pride that his family members hold. Renaming the junior high school provides hope and inspiration for the future of all students who spend time as members of the Aaron Mossell learning community. The renaming ceremony and dedication of this building was to recognize Aaron Mossell’s powerful life story. It is part of the Lockport City School District's motto "Pride in our Past, Faith in our Future".

LCSD New Staff

LCSD Athletics

Our 23 teams and 30 coaches that support our 362 student athletes who have been able to return to competition are grateful for the opportunity to be playing sports this school year. Even with the remote possibility of reduced seasons and stringent mitigation measures in place, there have been expressions of thanks for the chance to return to the pool, gymnasium, court or field.

Thank you to our coaches, students, officials and spectators in complying with the COVID-19 requirements on a daily basis. The "LION" community will continue to embody support and practice sportsmanship and respect.

Spirit Week and Homecoming

Spirit Week is the traditional kick-off to Homecoming and the students of Lockport High School began with hallway decorating. The Seniors chose the Lion King theme in the main hallway, Juniors decorated their hallway with a jungle theme, Sophomores selected an under the sea theme, and Freshmen rolled out an outer space-alien theme. The fun continued throughout Spirit Week. Students celebrated with Mascot Monday, Tourist Tuesday, Wacky Reverse Wednesday, Class Color Day and topped the week off with Blue and Gold Day, which was celebrated district wide. In addition, Student Council sponsored a door decorating contest.

An outdoor Pep Assembly was held on the Lockport High School turf field including a Powder Puff football game between seniors and juniors, games sponsored by our Sports Promotion teams, performances by our Varsity and Junior Varsity Cheer teams, and the sounds of LHS Pep Band as all of the fall sports teams were announced in preparation for Homecoming Day.

Lockport High School Pep Band

The LHS Pep Band plays at home football and basketball games. Under the direction of Band Director Timothy Martin, more than 30 talented high school musicians keep our Lions fans pumped up. The band led the way in the Annual Homecoming Parade and was once again in the stands for the Homecoming football game.
